NJ Loosens COVID-19 Travel Rules, Guidelines

NEW JERSEY – New Jersey issued new COVID-19 travel guidance on Monday night, loosening restrictions especially for people who are vaccinated and clarifying the rules for people who are traveling by plane.

New Jersey residents who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus no longer have to self-quarantine after taking a domestic trip across state lines, Gov. Phil Murphy has announced (see list of new rules and guidelines below).

According to Murphy, “fully vaccinated” Garden State residents who travel domestically in the U.S. aren’t required to self-quarantine after their trip, or get a COVID-19 test before or afterward – a significant shift from recent state recommendations.

For international travel, a negative test result or documentation of recovery is required for all travelers entering United States following air travel. All travelers should then self-monitor for symptoms during and after travel and self-isolate if symptoms develop

The restrictions follow updated travel recommendations

US Navy submarine USS Ohio may be important tool for Biden to send message to China

But it still may be the most fearsome and versatile US weapons platform operating in the Pacific.

As the Biden administration is demonstrating its commitments to US allies and protecting a free and open Indo-Pacific, it has been making statements with naval hardware.

And last week it gave the region a fresh look at the Ohio, showing off the 18,000-ton guided-missile submarine as it participated in exercises with US Marines around the Japanese island of Okinawa.

Sidharth Kaushal, a naval expert at London’s Royal United Services Institute, describes the USS Ohio and its sister boats, the USS Michigan, USS Florida and USS Georgia, as one-stop shops for getting missiles and troops in close to an adversary’s territory.

And that could be significant when compared to adversaries like China, which maintains a robust anti-ship missile capability but whose defenses against submarines are still being upgraded and refined.

Sailors assigned to theguided-missile submarine USS Ohio transit Apra Harbor on the US Pacific island of Guam earlier this year.

Exercise | Parkinson’s Foundation

Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone. For people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), exercise is more than healthy — it is a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and activities of daily living. Exercise and physical activity can improve many PD symptoms. These benefits are supported by research.

The Parkinson’s Outcomes Project shows that people with PD who start exercising earlier and a minimum of 2.5 hours a week, experience a slowed decline in quality of life compared to those who start later. Establishing early exercise habits is essential to overall disease management.

What Type of Exercise Should I Do? 

To help manage the symptoms of PD, be sure your exercise program includes a few key ingredients: 

  • Aerobic activity 
  • Strength training
  • Balance, agility and multitasking
  • Flexibility

These elements are included in many types of exercise. Biking, running, Tai chi, yoga, Pilates, dance, weight training, non-contact

If you’re not an athlete or serious exerciser — and you just want to work out for your health or to fit in your clothes better — the gym scene can be intimidating and overwhelming. What are the best exercises for me? How will I find the time?

Just having to walk by treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight machines can be enough to make you head straight back home to the couch.

They’ll help keep your weight under control, improve your balance and range of motion, strengthen your bones, protect your joints, prevent bladder control problems, and even ward off memory loss.

No matter your age or fitness level, these activities are some of the best exercises

Does coffee burn more fat during exercise? What the evidence tells us

Coffee, green tea and other caffeinated drinks are a popular way to start the morning.

Not only does it give many people a much-needed boost, but caffeine can also help when it comes to fitness.

Studies show it can help people exercise harder and for longer, and even perform better.

And recently, a study conducted at the University of Granada reported that consuming caffeine half an hour before aerobic exercise can actually help people burn fat.

In the study, 15 men (aged around 32) ingested caffeine powder (about 3mg per kilogram of body mass – the equivalent of a tall brewed filter coffee) or a placebo 30 minutes before exercising.

The participants then completed a total of four trials.

They alternated between exercising at either 8am or 5pm on separate days.

The study used a “triple-blind” experimental design – meaning that the participants, researchers and statistician did not know who

How Exercise May Help Protect Against Severe Covid-19

The researchers gathered data, too, about each person’s known risk factors for severe Covid, including their age, smoking habits, weight, and any history of cancer, diabetes, organ transplants, kidney problems and other serious, underlying conditions.

Then the researchers crosschecked numbers, with arresting results. People in the least-active group, who almost never exercised, wound up hospitalized because of Covid at twice the rate of people in the most-active group, and were subsequently about two-and-a-half times more likely to die. Even compared to people in the somewhat-active group, they were hospitalized about 20 percent more often and were about 30 percent more likely to die.

Of the other common risk factors for severe disease, only advanced age and organ transplants increased the likelihood of hospitalization and mortality from Covid more than being inactive, the scientists found.

“Being sedentary was the greatest risk factor” for severe illness, “unless someone was elderly or an

How to Do It, Benefits, and Muscles Worked

The superman exercise is an effective and efficient exercise for people of all fitness levels. It targets your lower back muscles, glutes, hamstrings, and abs.

When many people think of losing weight, one of the first things that comes to mind is getting a totally toned and taut tummy. After all, who doesn’t want to be able to slip into a pair of jeans without having to deal with a muffin top? Plus, losing belly fat is a surefire way to improve your health: Research links a larger waist size to heart disease, diabetes, and even some cancers. That said, we hate to break it to you, but doing hundreds of crunches every day isn’t the best way to lose belly fat. In fact, exercises that promote spot reduction just don’t exist.

“Spot reduction isn’t a viable approach to losing belly fat,” explains fitness trainer and nutrition expert Corey Phelps, creator of the Cultivate by Corey Fitness Program. “But there are some great core-focused exercises that will torch fat all over the
